Amish Circle Quilt Project - # 102 - "Pretzels"

Block # 102 - "Pretzels"
Started on 8/25/11
Completed on 9/4/11
Technique: Applique'

So, if you know someone who hearts pretzels, this is the quilt they need! Who'd a thunk it? A Pretzel makes a cute quilt block. If it wasn't an Amish quilt, I would probably embelish with some of the tiny tube shaped beads in a pearlescent white or even the little tiny seed beads (I think they are called).

I've read about the Amish baking their own pretzels. I suppose non-Amish people do that too? But those people all probably actually have a fondness for pretzels. They aren't my favorite. I probably wouldn't go hungry to avoid eating them but I would choose many other things over them.

Now, I do appreciate a pretzel dipped in almond bark or even chocolate. I don't indulge in those too often though. I try to lay off sweets when I can so I don't get too sweet myself.

I actually got some stitching done this weekend. Working on the Toomuchery quilt for Elizabeth. Something tells me it is going to be way too cute and coordinated to call it Toomuchery. Unless we go at the angle of it being just "too much" cuteness.

I'm not sure where the days have been going. Well, I've been sort of sick. I was hoping the doctor would call today with results of my some bloodwork I had last Friday. Didn't hear from them. She is suspecting I have an ulcer or am possibly anemic. My money is on Anemia but ya never know with me. I am rather creative in ailments.

Anyway, today was a good day among some rotten ones lately. I got a lot done and feel sort of caught up! Enchilada Meatballs baking in the oven, boys home soon from pack meeting. Trinity putting her clean laundry away. All is right in my world!

Hope you have a great day today, hope the sun is shining where you are. Have you ever had Annie's pretzels in the mall, they are absolutely wonderful. Not only the regular but the cinnamon sugar.:)
